While there is undoubtedly a correlation between having higher COMLEX and USMLE scores and matching into desired residency programs, the data shows that scores are not the only factor for matching. In fact, there are many other areas where students can excel that will help them match. These include, but are by no means limited to, conducting clinical research, getting good letters of recommendation, having an impressive CV that highlights your medical and relevant extracurricular activities, and having a successful residency interview.
